Music Birthday: KYGO

Today, September 11, 1991, Kygo was born Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll in Singapore. Kygo has a song with Ellie Goulding called ‘First Time,’ and it reached no. 6 on the US Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart.

The song was co-produced with Kygo by Hitimpulse – producer of Cher Lloyd’s ‘Lost,’ and remixer of Rihanna’s ‘Bitch Better Have My Money. ‘First Time’ also peaked on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 Chart, at no. 26

And speaking of remixes, ‘First Time’ has been remixed at least twice. One by R3hab, and another by Gryffin – both available for streaming on Spotify.

As of September 24, 2018, a little over a year after it’s original release, ‘First Time’ is a gold-certified dance club song here in the United States (RIAA).

You can find the song on Kygo’s “Stargazing” extended play.
